Ordinary Pastors

We watched the following video for our TriState Fellowship Ministerium meeting.

T4G 2010 -- Session 9 -- C.J. Mahaney from Together for the Gospel (T4G) on Vimeo.

After the video, we also discussed the following questions:

    1. How can a comfort with being called to the ordinary not lead to complacency or laziness in ministry?
    2. Though CJ Mahaney refers to himself as an "ordinary pastor," none of us would probably refer to him as one. How do you think he maintains a genuine humility in regard to his ministry?
    3. How can we keep from comparing ourselves (either favorably, or unfavorably) with other pastors/churches within our district?
    4. Who do you have in your life who can assess whether you are being patient toward the sheep God has entrusted to you?
This timely article also came out on the Gospel Coalition.

Take a look, I think it will bless you.
